Among all the wonderful places that i hanged out, one was able to struck my heart real deep and that is Freie Universität. The scenery environment, the sophisticated facilities; am just out of words.

To obtain a visa
You will need to show empirical proof that you can finance your feeding expenses and accommodation before a visa is issued and that can be done in two ways.
- Send a letter of finance to the German embassy. You can obtain this letter of finance from your parents or anyone capable of sponsoring your education in Germany.
- If the above looks so cumbersome, then open a blocked account and deposit 7000 euros. This blocked account is opened in the German embassy and can only be done once you have received your admission letter.
